To preview this season’s standings in the Danish Metal Ligaen, look no further than last year’s standings.

Esbjerg Energy are looking for a three-peat, and are positioned well to do so. Lead by their head coach Mark Pederson, has had nothing but success in the Metal Ligaen. In four seasons as a head coach, he has a quarterfinal loss, a second place finish, and two championships. While the team lost nine players from their championship team, they had no problem replacing them. They brought in eight new players to the organization, three from North America. Michael Fine played over 300 games in the OHL, and over 100 in the USports league, which is Canada’s top University league. In USports, Fine has a career PPG of 1.06, and he was the captain at Ryerson University for three of his five season with the team. They also added mobile defenceman Taylor Fleming from Western Michigan University of the NCAA, and 18 year old Christian Wejse, who most recently spent a season in the QMJHL. The 18 year old Dane returns to his Danish team after lighting up the U-17 league in Denmark, along with holding his own in the U-20 league, looking to develop his game in his native country. They also added Colin Vock, who had 40 points last year in the Metal Ligaen, to add to the scoring machine that the Energy hope to be. Boasting some of the youngest goaltending in the league, the Energy can rely on 21 year old Nicolaj Henriksen. The Denmark native put up very respectable numbers last season with the team, with a 2.10 GAA and a .920 SV%, and improved on both categories in the playoffs. Couple this with a young, mobile defence, and the Energy should have no issues taking home the league championship again this season.

Challenging the Energy for top spot in the Metal Ligaen will be last year’s third place team, the Frederikshavn White Hawks. While they lost their top scorer Colin Vock to the Energy, the White Hawks brought in Roberts Jekimovs from the Blue Fox, who notched 39 points last season. They also added Concordia University standout Anthony Deluca, who boasts not only a 1.03 career PPG in the QMJHL (including a 91 point season in 2014-2015), but also a 1.54 PPG in USports last season with Concordia. Deluca is a goal scorer who will do his best to fill the scoring void that has been left in Frederikshavn. They also brought in Mads Larsen from the SHL to shut down opponents, much like he did last year for AIK, along with national Christian Mieritz who also played in Sweden last season, to firm up their blue line. The White Hawks should challenge for a top three finish in the Metal Ligaen this season.
